Diary Day Nineteen
Mo at Hadrians wall
wonderful home cooked meal to finish the day and the best porridge we
have ever tasted to start this one.
got underway at 8.30am in a cold wind and overcast sky threatening
rain that luckily never materialised. Colin was happy out of the
rucksack all day enjoying the fantastic views.
was very busy on the wall path with lots of walkers mainly coming the
opposite direction doing the Coast-to-Coast and low flying jets that
close that you could see the pilots. Hadrianís Wall is another must
visit place with its milecastles and turrets. Up and down hills all
day compensated by the wonderful views especially at Highshield Crags
down over Crag Lough and across to Wark Forest.
along Mo saw another hill to the left and said how lucky that we did
not have to climb it only to turn the corner and there it was again in
front of us Hotbank up to Hotbank Crags. Having made the climb the
Pennine Way leaves Hadrianís Wall at Cuddyís Crags but we
continued on to Vercovicium Roman Fort that has an atmosphere all of
itís own. Down to the Military Road and a coffee at the information
centre then on to Moss Kennels Farm for our overnight accommodation
where we arrived at 4pm.
day tomorrow and looking forward to Uncle Eddie coming to take us out
so we hope to be refreshed for our final four-day section into
Scotland. Looks like itís going to be over 280 miles altogether.
Thanks for all the messages of encouragement keep them coming to help
us to the end.
for now Mo, Dave & Colin.
